Our Services

Grief Matters is a movement by Montfort Care to rally the community to recognise grief and offer bereavement support.

We aim to promote bereaved-friendly practices in the community, workplaces and schools, in addition to offer personalised care to the bereaved.

Our team of counsellors and social workers would reach out to any bereaved person, family or community who would benefit from additional support to navigate the experience of losing a significant person.

Advance Care Planning

We facilitate conversations with individuals and families to talk about their values, beliefs and experiences and how these factors influence their future care preferences.

Community End-of-Life Support

We support individuals with advanced or life-limiting illnesses and their families in navigating healthcare and other resources, to better enable care within the community and their homes.

Bereavement Care

In your journey of grief, we offer emotional support and advice on practical matters for you and your loved ones.

Public Education

We conduct talks, courses, workshops, and more to share information and start conversations around issues of death and dying.

Resources to Share – Telling Moments

Telling Moments (真情告白) is a deck of images specially commissioned by Grief Matters to illustrate experiences related to living, dying and bereavement in the local Singapore context. Complete with conversation starters, it was originally intended as a card game to encourage families and the community to discuss and reflect on sensitive topics that are traditionally considered as taboo and kept under wraps – death and dying. When COVID-19 struck, we held back the printing of these images into physical cards to use as a table game and started using the images for online engagement.

After receiving requests to use the images for public engagement, education and training purposes, we have decided to upload all of the160 images online to share with our partners who are committed to promote literacy in the topics of care planning, health, grief and death. These images can be downloaded for your use with Grief Matters duly acknowledged.
